Escape To A Quiet Place Right In Your Own Lexington Home

As we all know, live can be hectic at times to say the least. Just dreaming of enjoying a tropical beach just doesn't cut it. But making a "retreat" right at home may do the trick.

How about creating a quiet spot in your home? If a separate room is not available, you can designate an area that is away from all technology (BlackBerries/telephones included) and distractions.

Surprisingly a relaxing ambiance can be achieved easily by setting up a privacy screen.

Experts recommend painting the walls a soothing color such as pale blue, greens or neutrals such as taupe or beige. Avoid bright yellows or reds as they are energetic shades.

Next, get rid of the clutter.

Set up a big, comfy armchair, ottoman, and a side table with space for a lamp and a soothing cup of tea.

Also consider adding family/friends photos to the walls, and place scented candles throughout the room.

Keep in mind that less is more.

And the best part is that you do not need a passport to get away!
